    If you have a florist in your town, their single flowers usually are shipped with netting over them. Even the florist shops at the grocery stores have them. I've asked them to save them for me so I haven't had to purchase any for years. The nettings are fairly long so for your embroidery threads, you can cut them in half.

    If you use one of the gadjets made to hold a cone of thread, that pulls the threas upward and through a loop, then into your machine, it will solve any problems of the thread not feeding properly.

    Me too. I am 65 and never heard of these before. Have I sheltered myself from all these great things?

    I am glad my tip has given lots of giggles.

    I did have some explaining when a friend came over when my machines was set up and I was using the condom threat net.

    I do appreciate all the tips on other things to use. No more condoms in this house. But there is a florist a block from where I work, so I will ask about flower nets.

    Dear Tothill, you have given alot of us a good laugh, I have tears running down my face from reading all the comments. Thank you and I will be laughing for days when I think of it. Makes me think of the joke about the old lady. Her minister came to call and when she went for coffee, he saw a bowl of oil with a condom in foil floating in it. He asked what she had that sitting on her panio for and she said she found it in the park. It said to use to preven disease and lubricate it. So she put it in a bowl and it had floated there all winter and she hadn't been sick once.

    You're not alone - that's what I thought they were for too! In fact I'm sure I saw them advertised for this on a website.

    GailG, you are not a dunce and nether are you, knitette. Thread nets are used for two main purposes - to avoid thread looping while you are embroidering, AND to stop thread from unwinding when it's not being used. In both cases, thread nets solve the problem easily and effectively.

    Walmart's in NY have cut mums with flower nets on and are only $5 - you would get several and also get to enjoy the flowers too!
